    I just learned that there are giant concrete arrows across the whole U.S. They were used by early AirMail pilots.

    In the 1920s, the USPS placed giant concrete arrows every ten miles across the United States to guide pilots along the first transcontinental air mail routes across the United States. Hundreds still exist (though they've lost their bright yellow paint and night beacons). LOVE.
